Paul Pogba’s time at Manchester United appears to be coming to an end.

United have been keen to extend the Frenchman’s contract with his current deal set to run out next summer.

However, according to The Mirror, he has rejected the chance to extend his stay in Manchester.

It’s been reported that United wanted to tie Pogba down to a long-term deal and offered him a £350,000-a-week deal.



That’s a £100,000-per-week increase on his current deal.

However, Pogba has reportedly rejected the chance to become the third highest paid player in the Premier League, behind Kevin De Bruyne and David de Gea.

United are now looking to sell Pogba following his unwillingness to sign a new deal.
